But as I have been sitting in bed thinking about today, the amount of running about our van has to do today I was drawn to some familiar passages from the gospels.
When the disciples were heading out on their first assignment, did they get removals in, pack their van and head off?? ... mmm... NO!
Luke 9 Jesus Sends Out the Twelve1When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, 2and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. 3He told them: "Take nothing for the journey—no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic. 4Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town. 5If people do not welcome you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave their town, as a testimony against them." 6So they set out and went from village to village, preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere.
mmm... what is essential?
